Reasons Tony enjoys working in the MBA programme

There is such a diversity of professional backgrounds and wealth of experience among the students that do the MBA. The challenge Tony enjoys is leveraging this so the students get the most from sharing their experiences and learning from each other. Tony also enjoys learning from the students himself!
